Our areas of specialty include:
Business litigation is a legal method utilized to resolve business disputes and legal issues in regards to finances and investments, intellectual property, breaches of contract, infringement, and insurance disputes. Similar disputes occur in real estate and are resolved in a similar matter, through litigation which means any action brought in court to enforce a particular right. Due to the sensitive nature of the case, varying state laws, and other terms stipulated in agreements, having an attorney with a thorough understanding of the law is extremely beneficial to ensure the positive resolution of such action.
Criminal law regulates social conduct and proposes punishment to those who violate said laws. Criminal laws vary significantly from state to state, however there is a Model Penal Code which serves as a starting point to gain a better understanding of the basic structure of criminal liability. If it is considered threatening, harmful, or otherwise endangering to the property, health, safety, and moral welfare of others, it falls under the jurisdiction of criminal law, and you need someone who thoroughly understands what that means in the State of Nevada.
Family law deals with domestic and family matters including marriage and civil unions, adoption, child welfare related issues, divorce, property settlements, child custody and related support, and suits related to paternity. This list is not exhaustive and varies depending on jurisdiction, which is why it is important to retain the services of an attorney with specialized experience.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract entered and agreed upon prior to a marriage or civil union. The content of this agreement varies greatly depending on the parties involved and is contingent on a number of factors, but its common usage includes provisions for the division of property and spousal support in the event of the dissolution of the marriage. It may also contain terms for the forfeiture of assets as a result of actions taken by one or both members of the agreement, such as adultery. Again, due to the varying nature of laws between states, an experienced attorney will be knowledgeable in the drafting of such a document and subsequently the enforcement.
Postnuptial agreements are similar to prenuptials, except that they are entered into after a couple is married. Conditions of guardianship may be included as well, ensuring the well-being of the children.
Bankruptcy is a legal status of a person or entity that cannot repay the debts owed to its creditors. In most jurisdictions, bankruptcy is imposed by a court order and is often initiated by the debtor. While bankruptcy cases are always filed in United States Bankruptcy Court, these cases, particularly with respect to the validity of claims, is dependent upon State law, hence the necessity of an attorney with knowledge and experience with such legal matters.
• Chapter 7, known as a straight bankruptcy, is basic liquidation for individuals and businesses.
• Chapter 11, known as corporate bankruptcy and used primarily by businesses, is a form of financial reorganization which typically allows companies to continue to operate while under a repayment plan.
Avoiding probate court proceedings after your death can save your family time, money, and headaches. Revocable living trusts are the only probate-avoidance technique that allows you to avoid probate for virtually any property you own: real estate, jewelry, heirlooms, bank accounts, and much more.
Revocable living trusts function like wills–you use them to leave your property, and if you change your mind at any time while you’re alive, you can change the terms of the trust or revoke it altogether. The advantage comes at your death. Property in the trust is controlled by the person you named to take over as successor trustee, and that person has the power to distribute the property to inheritors without any probate court involvement. That saves everyone a lot of work and gets property to the people you chose to inherit it much more quickly.
